Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero
Good morning Galileo class,
I hope that you are all well. Mrs Davies, Mrs Tildsley, Mrs Tempest, Mrs Wadley and Mrs Malam and I had a very busy day yesterday turning our 'messy' classroom into a nice tidy one. I think you will be very surprised how great it looks when Mrs Davies shares some photos later in the week. It's nearly ready for some of our Year 1 children to join us back in school next week. We miss you all and hope to see you soon.
Here is the plan for your learning today...
Continue to learn your sounds, words and spellings by completing the following 4 Read, Write Inc. lessons:
Each video is only 10/15 minutes long and they are available to watch from 9.30am. You can watch these anytime within 24 hours.
Today for your reading you have the choice of two comprehension activities with the theme of the sea. You can choose either 'Captain Blackbeard' or 'The Boastful Turtle'. Read the story and then answer the VIPERS questions at the bottom of the story page. Write the answer to the questions in your Home Learning book. Please note that these resources are on the same document and not in your Home Learning pack. Captain Blackbeard can be found on pages 3-4 with the answers on page 5. The Boastful Turtle can be found on pages 7-8 with the answers on page 9.
Today's maths lesson focuses on making patterns with shapes. Share the PowerPoint presentation lesson 4 and discuss the following questions:
What is happening in the pattern?
What will come next / before? How do you know?
What method did you use to work out the missing shape?
Is there another way the pattern can be described?
Can a shape making a quarter turn clockwise each time also be described as making a three-quarter turn anticlockwise each time? How do we know?
Then complete the activity creating shape patterns. Once you have finished the activity you may enjoy creating your own patterns on the computer/tablet using the web link below. Have fun!
Head to the Topic page to choose a lesson for today and don't forget about the Father's Day this coming Sunday!
